[141.07] The Long Term Multiwavelength Behavior of TeV Blazars

J Maune, M Carini, N Simms (WKU), A Campbell (LSU)

We present the results of a study of the long term multiwavelength variability behavior of three TeV Blazars: PKS 2155-304, MKN 421 and MKN 501. Multicolor optical and X-ray light curves were constructed by searching the literature for all optical photometric and X-ray observations. The ultraviolet light curves were constructed from a re-analysis of the IUE data archive, taking advantage of the improved Final Archive processing. We discuss various variability properties of these three sources across the electromagnetic spectrum, including variability amplitudes and timescales, spectral variability, and lags between wavebands.
